Pléiades Primary (Download)

Primary: Sensor image, not georeferenced or map-projected, and rigourous model metadata (attitude, ephemeris) allowing geometric processing (orthorectification – DEM extraction). RGB+NIR (2 m) and panchromatic (0.5 m) bands.


Introduction

This block provides non-rectified, unprojected high-resolution 12-bit Pléiades images. Available since 2012, these images are acquired by the twin constellation Pléiades 1A and 1B on a daily basis anywhere on the globe. These images are optimal for users familiar with remote sensing processing methods who want to apply their own production techniques (orthorectification or 3D modelling).

Restrictions

AOI size: The AOI must be larger than 0.1 square kilometers.

Geometric filter: The output image is clipped to the AOI bounding box, so the image gaps will be padded with zeros until the bounding box is covered. Depending on the AOI shape and irregularity, the final output image might be larger and the credit consumption will slightly increase.
